Boston Celtics Win Game 3 101-91, Led By Veteran Kevin Garnett
The veteran Boston Celtics outperformed the visiting Miami Heat in Game 3 of the 2012 Eastern Conference NBA Finals. The Celtics forward/center Kevin Garnett scored 24 points and 11 rebounds on 10-of-16 shooting as Boston defended their home court, in a decisive 101-91 victory.
All-star point guard Rajon Rondo contributed 21 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists as they defeated the Heat sending the series with Miami 2-1.
“I’m getting crap about my form, but I want people to know it’s because it was on my knuckles,” Garnett joked in the locker room after leading Boston to a 101-91 victory over the Heat that cut Miami’s lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1. “That’s old school. My uncle taught me to do pushups on my knuckles. That’s some Army-Navy stuff.”
MVP LeBron James scored 34 points on 16-of-26 shooting.
“You’re trying to fight back the whole time,” said James, who scored 16 points in the first quarter but just four with one rebound and one assist in the fourth. “We made a run but it was too much.”
Dwyane Wade had 18 points on 9 of 20 shooting from the field and the All-star guard did not attempt a free throw in Friday night’s lost against the Boston Celtics.
